Dear Nanna,

I heard that Iceland was a great place for women, regularly topping international polls for gender equality and actively promoting women’s rights. Do you think this runs true?

Best, 

Frankfurt Feminist


Dear Frankfurt Feminist,

When I’m asked about my opinions on feminism, I like to refer to educated and articulate people who know what they are talking about. In this case, I would like to point you Sunny Sweetness, a leading voice among Icelandic women on the topic of feminism. If you have the time, maybe shave your pits and watch this.

Sincerely,

Nanna-With-Tits-As-Big-As-The-Living-Room-Árnadóttir.


Dear Nanna

I’ve heard that it’s very easy to learn how to speak Icelandic. One can simply put an -ur at the end of every word-ur. Is this true-ur?

Thank you,

Olafur


Dear Olafur,

Since-ur you-ur have-ur deciphered-ur our language-ur so-ur quickly-ur, I-ur feel-ur confident-ur writing-ur this-ur to-ur you-ur in-ur Icelandic-ur. Congratulations-ur, no-ur more-ur phrasebooks-ur for-ur you-ur!

Best-ur,

Nanna-ur.

Got a question for me about Iceland or need some bad life advice? Tweet me on @NannaArnadottir or email nanna.arnadottir(at)gmail.com and you might get an answer next Friday or not, whatever, I’m pretty busy eating pizza and massaging my cat’s butt.
